Too lazy to do some fact checking yourself? Ah, it is much easier to accuse, using disparaging quotes. Depending on the time period, murder was reported by various sources as the leading or third leading cause of death among pregnant and post-partum women. Thses reports do need to be taken with a grain of salt, as statistics capturing this data are incomplete, and not consistent from state to state. Sources other than the one listed by Mike2348 list the percentage of coerced abortions as being as high as 64%. These include pressure from parents, male partners, etc, so the level of coercion may vary. So, perhaps the stat should be for those abortions where the pregnant woman is forced, coerced or pressured.
